Irving Tissue produces premium household store brand paper products for many of North America’s top retailers, in addition to some of the top-selling tissue brands in the marketplace. It is part of Irving Consumer Products, one of North America’s leading manufacturers of household paper and baby diaper products.
In 2019 Irving Tissue announced the opening of their newest $470 million dollar tissue plant in Macon, Georgia, and based on a new, additional $400 million dollar investment, will soon double its capacity.
The announcement was made at the new plant where Irving Tissue President Robert K. Irving was joined by Georgia Lieutenant-Governor Geoff Duncan, Macon Bibb-County Mayor Robert Reichert, MCBIA Chairman Robert Fountain Jr., and other dignitaries to celebrate both the official opening of the plant and yet another major investment by Irving Tissue in the community.
Irving Tissue’s new $470 million dollar plant is located on Allen Road in the Sofkee Industrial Park and employs more than 200 people. It produces ultra-premium quality household paper products including soft bath tissue and high-quality paper towel that is both strong and absorbent.
The new second phase of the project represents an additional $400 million dollar investment, adding another 150 jobs, and will be completed by January 2022. “We’ve already ordered an additional ThruAir Dry machine that will be a duplicate of what we already have in our Macon plant,” said Robert Irving.
